WORCESTER, Mass., April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The festival runs from April 17 through April 19 at The Palladium in Worcester, MA.
Launched in 2011, Appsbar opened up the mobile marketing category for small and medium-size businesses by allowing them to develop and distribute mobile apps for free using the dynamic app building template at appsbar.com.
The service has proven to be a boon for artists, musicians, and bands that were previously locked out of the mobile space because of budget constraints and lack of technical ability.
The App Music Challenge was initially launched at this year's South by Southwest Festival at two unofficial showcase events including the New England Metal Fest showcase held at the Des Moines Embassy club on March 20.
Through appmusicchallenge.com, bands and musicians are able to create branded mobile apps to share with fans. These customizable apps are developed with Appsbar's free and easy-to-use app builder and allow artists to upload photos, videos, touring itineraries, and new music.
The App Music Challenge winners will be determined by downloads and activations, with the greatest number of activations being eligible for weekly prizes and the grand prize. The contest runs through Dec. 31, 2015.
Appsbar's user-base has grown internationally to over a half million subscribers making it one of the most popular app building platforms in the world. In 2013, Appsbar added mobile capabilities to its offerings, allowing users to create, edit, and publish phones directly from a smartphone or tablet.
The addition of a mobile version signals another innovation by the Deerfield Beach, FL firm which earlier in 2013 was awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for mobile application development systems.
